Gene said it was a classic movie ..if you were on drugs. On 10-30-78, NBC airs the made-for-TV film KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park, starring the rockers as heroes fighting a mad scientist (Anthony Zerbe) in an amusement park. The movie was terrible. So terrible that now it's a cult classic and beloved by KISS fans around the world. So let's take a look back at it.
